Simon Attfield

I am an Associate Professor in the department of Computer Science at Middlesex University and part of the Interaction Design Centre.

Research
My research is in the area of computer supported information behaviour, sensemaking and particularly solutions involving visual analytics. My approach often involves field studies to explore individual and collaborative behaviour and needs, the development of theory, and the development and evaluation of systems to support better use and understanding of information. Application areas include journalism, health, underground control, legal e-discovery, alerting and research, and intelligence analysis.
